Musical Theatre Auditions 101 – TAKE AWAY TIPS
from the Director (Ryan Washabaugh)
- Be kind and courteous to everyone you come in contact with
- OWN your audition – the time is yours!
- Take the time to introduce yourself “be you”
- Properly slate your piece of music after your introduction “I will be singing “song title” from “show” – if you are singing two songs slate separately
- Dress for success! A comfotable but dressed up version of you
- #1 way to kill nerves is to be confidently prepared for your audition
- 16/32 bar cuts should make sense but be the meat of the song
- Always say thank-you at the end of your audition
